About the Show

Husband and wife house flipping team Tarek and Christina have viewers on the edge of their seats as they purchase dilapidated properties for cash, sometimes sight unseen, and then renovate and flip them for resale.

Flop House Flip

Tarek snoops a small four bedroom foreclosure with a pool in La Mirada as Christina heads to the public foreclosure auction where the house is on the docket. Tarek calls Christina, and from his evaluation of the house, Christina bids and wins the house for $210,000, a smokin' deal! However, as soon as Tarek and Christina open the door, it's clear that this dilapidated house needs a full rehab from tip to tail. It's a disgusting, smelly, confusing mess of rooms, with piles of trash, and graffiti everywhere. Tarek seriously underestimated the home's rehab costs, as initial bids from contractors come in at $50,000 and up. The cost alone for cleaning up this flop house is expensive, but when they begin to discover a bevy of unpermitted construction, Tarek and Christina are forced to demo unpermitted additions and spend money to decrease their square footage! With a skyrocketing budget and a rehab plan, which actually might be de-valuing the house, will this flop house Flip Or Flop?

A Neglected Flip

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a home in Anaheim, California that is being offered as a quick, all-cash sale with no inspections and no contingencies. This seems like a project that's right up their alley. But with a tenant still living in the property, Tarek and Christina can't see inside the home before deciding to make an offer and anything could be behind that front door. Will the unknown spell disaster or could a little tender loving care be all that's needed to reverse the woes of this neglected flip?

Inland Empire Cosmetic Nightmare

Tarek and Christina spot a large house in Ontario CA, going to auction for an opening bid 150K. But it's too far away to snoop and the auction starts in less than an hour. Based on comps, which are $240K-$260K, they take a leap of faith and head to the auction where they win the house for $180K. It's always nerve wracking to buy a house sight-unseen, but while walking through the house with their contractor, Dan Messina, it seems to be mostly cosmetic and can be done for 30K in 30 days. But after the work begins they find rotted wood, which leads to extensive termite damage. Will these termites destroy their budget to update the house? Will they be able to make the upgrades that will attract buyers? Or will they be forced to market this Inland Empire Cosmetic Nightmare as is.

A Pig In A Poke

Tarek and Christina spot a trust sale in Fullerton, California. It's tenant occupied which means they cannot inspect the house, but the numbers look good and after touring a comparable, renovated listing, they feel confident enough to make an offer. Tarek and Christina arrive at their new house ready to design but that will have to be put on hold as they could not have anticipated what they find. Can they keep this flip on track or will a bevy of surprise expenses deliver them a flop? Have Tarek and Christina fooled themselves into buying a pig in a poke?

Toxic Flip

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a small house that's aggressively priced and could be a lucrative deal based on comparable sales in the neighborhood. They go to inspect the house before making a decision and find it boarded up and in rough shape. Despite its condition, the numbers are promising and they've done well in this area before. They decide to take the calculated risk and buy the home, its interior still sight unseen. Can Tarek and Christina keep this project under control to see risk through to reward or could hidden troubles turn this house into a toxic flip?

No Risk, No Reward

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a trust sale property in Anaheim, California with an original layout and a dated design. It's in good shape and seems like a mostly cosmetic project with a lot of potential. But when their project manager comes back with a ballooning budget and a laundry list of contingencies, Tarek and Christina wonder if this home has more potential than pitfalls. Still, skilled flippers that they are, Tarek and Christina don't back down from a challenge and know that with no risk, comes no reward.

Big Lot Little Flip

Tarek and Christina spot a new listing in Buena Park, California that's small and run down but sits on a very large lot, offering possibilities for added value and increased profit. With a low asking price compared to comparable properties, the house is already attracting interest from other investors. With no time for close inspection Tarek and Christina place an offer; but do they really know what they're getting into? Do good flips come in small packages or could a flop be at the end of the road of this big lot little flip?

Nothing But Potential

Tarek and Christina come across a bank-owned listing which has been on the market for fewer than 24 hours and is only accepting offers until 5:00pm the very same day. It's a house with great potential and Tarek is ready to pounce, so they make an offer and the bank accepts. But as renovation rolls along to bring this home to its true potential, problems arise. As budgets crash through ceilings and deadlines continue to be pushed, could this latest flip turn out to be nothing but trouble, or will it prove it always had nothing but potential?

Pipe Dreams

Tarek and Christina come across a For Sale By Owner property in Garden Grove, California. This type of sale is always exciting for a flipper because it means no real estate agent commissions and an opportunity to negotiate a fair sale price. The house is in good shape and looks to need only cosmetic repairs and improvements. But in the business of flipping, one can rarely judge an old house by its finishes and it is truly what's on the inside that counts. Can Tarek and Christina deal with the hidden problems of an old house or will their hopes of a fast and easy flip turn out to be nothing but pipe dreams?

Tarek and Christina get a lead from their friend and investor, Pete, on a house he's recently purchased. It's situated in an upscale, gated neighborhood and it's a house Pete can't tackle on his own. A large, expensive flip can mean equally large profits; but it also takes time and even the littlest mistake is magnified. Will Tarek and Christina be able to partner with Pete to score their biggest profit yet, or could they lose it all in this natural disaster flip?

With an asking price just below a million dollars, this would be the most expensive flip they've taken on - and also the biggest risk.

Tarek and Christina know that if they're going to flip this house, they'll have to stick to the budget. Can they revive this family home or could tricky obstacles distort this fun house flip?

Custom Craftsman

Tarek and Christina are contacted by their friend and fellow flipper, Jessie Rodriguez, who has purchased a craftsman style home in an historic area of Santa Ana, California. While Jessie specializes in renovating older, architecturally significant homes, Tarek and Christina are experts at bringing in a flip on schedule and on budget. It will take both skillsets to finish and sell this project for a profit, and Jessie is hoping to strike a partnership. Can Tarek, Christina, and Jessie combine the speed and cost of a flip with the detailed craftsmanship of a renovation to deliver on this custom craftsman flip?

Diamond in the Rough

Tarek and Christina spot a listing for a small home near the beach in Costa Mesa, California. The home is in rough shape and will surely require a lot of work to renovate, but it's in a desirable and eclectic neighborhood and properties in the surrounding beachside communities command top dollar. Can Tarek and Christina transform this house from the worst on the block to the showpiece by the beach, or could a ballooning budget prove this diamond in the rough to be a lump of coal?
